On the 6th of January Seprasz and I ( VirresSs ) started an guild called the Portal Keepers. Since then we met different members and did some amazing hunting events with the community. We transformed the recruiting post into an informative topic that is going to share the events we are planning, but also new plans and contact points on different subjects like the portal Gateways and hunts.
Below here we will write down some general information. This includes the schedule for the hunts, information about the Gateways, Contracts and maybe future events.

We are going to do Guild hunts and Junior hunts. Junior hunts will be focusing on leveling players and help them into the game. Both the Guild and Junior hunts are scheduled for members. But don’t mind asking if you can join. Contact @virresss for availability and prices. It will be payable in resources, obtainable by new players. Don’t be afraid!
Open Resource Contracts for Guild and Community Members.
Resource Contracts are a recurring daily/weekly activity that players can accept. They have a set amount of resources required to complete the contract, along with a set reward, varying based upon resource and membership status with members being offered the contracts first, along with a better reward. The contract is non-negotiable once accepted and payment will only be given upon completion. This is a recurring event a player may request or have requested of them by the Guild when needed. The goal of these would be to assist players in generating self income while only requiring small amounts of time investments. Trusted players and Guild Members would be able to receive tool rewards upfront.
Reward: Coin and Tools
Limited Trade Agreements.
Trade Agreements are established for long term resources requirements and would function much as the contracts do, but on a much larger scale. These again would be offered first to Guild Members but other established merchants or players capable and willing, would also be able to fulfill. These are to be used for a short term, per-week basis. Renewable upon request of the Guild, and cancelable at any time by either party. Resource requirements and payment would be mutually agreed upon before acceptance, and non-negotiable once taken. Payment would not be limited to coin, and the trade of other resources as payment would be acceptable.
It is understood that anyone accepting these agreements would be responsible for providing their own means of acquiring the resources and no upfront cost would be imposed or required upon the Guild unless offered in advance. Failure to complete a Trade Agreement in the necessary amount time alloted would result in future agreements to not be accepted, renewed and or canceled and re-offered to other capable players.
Amount: 5000 per week ongoing
Reward: Negotiable before acceptance
We are working hard at building Gateways on every planet. At this moment it is possible to connect to the portal hub at the following planets:
Connected planets are
- Munteen VI
We are trying to get every Gateway as fast as possible up and running. They might be looking unfinished, but they should be functional. We are working hard since we are noticing that several portal networks are shutting down due to the lack of Oorthstone of interest. And we think we can build a reliable, friendly, and usable portal hub.
Some guidelines for the portal hubs.
- Players are able to buy portals. The portals may only connect to the portals coming from the same planet
- City portals have a separate room. If you are in the top 5 or consider yourself a city. Please contact @SePras
- we are working on making shopping portals on Nasharil and Vulpto. This way a player can make use of more portals and don’t have use the Gateway to every planet to see the shops. For more information please contact @SePras
Further down at the end you can read how the Portal Seekers found the daylight, but lets do a small introduction of the Portal Seekers guild. We are going to make a guild where people are working together. We try to accomplish that be doing Guild Hunts and do a good pricing on selling/buying things to/from members.
Our main activity is hunting. this is because it is one of the few things you can do with other people. We have the best and the most experienced hunters in the guild. They are trying (not always succeeding ) to get the attention from the mobs to safe the others.
Yet for builders we are trying to challenge them with designing and building structures for the guild, and the community. Since the shutdown of several portal network, we wanted to introduce the Gateway. This is build together with the members and we listen to every suggestion to improve it.
Then we have miners. They might be called last, but they are the fuel for the guild. With the hunts and all the buildings, coal and other materials are gone before we know it.
We are focusing on building the guild and we appreciate everyone who is contributing to the guild, and we know it isn’t for nothing. Because of the in guild economy we can get a lot of resources, which we craft for our guild members and the everyone else. Yet members are able to get a better price and have priority. besides saving money, you are able to make money too.

The story of the Portal Seekers start at the night where the first meteors landed on our boundless worlds. A small amount of different groups of Oorthlings investigated these new flying projectiles. Some tried to open it with hammers, other tried to shovel it. And even a few tried to open it with a Axe. The funny thing is… All those groups of Oorthlings with iron tools or stronger, were able to open it. And they found a small amount of gems, and Oorthstone. The Oorthlings knew what to do with the gems. They mined on all the worlds that were accessible, but the universe ran out of gems…
At first the Oorthlings didn’t knew what to do with the Oorthstone, But after some decades and advanced technology the Oorthlings where able to make portals. Life was great, traveling was sort and everything seemed fine. People where building bigger and bigger portals! But it got too big and too powerful. there was an explosion… it was a weird one. It wasn’t an heat explosion, but of radiation. A purple energy sphere grow and grow and went true everything. But it seemed to do nothing. Until the meteor showers came again. At first people where glad, it meant more gems and Oorthstone! but they weren’t prepared.
A small group of Oorthlings went to the meteor to harvest it, and all of the sudden, there appeared portals in the sky and the meteor started to burn. It had no color where i t came from, not a known color. But it started to drop creatures, aggressive ones. They seemed to work together. With one purpose in their mind, to vanish the Oorthlings who try to touch the meteorites.
The fight was fears and brutal, they had to fight with whatever they took with them: Iron shovels, hammers and axes.
And when the fight ended, a few where still standing. The others were awful to see, it was indescribable. But hardened and bound be the fight, they felt they should stick together. These Oorthlings, that went true the world as Portal Seekers, The protected the other Oorthlings and shared experience and the loot.
Yet true the passage of time, the Portal Seekers got smaller and weaker. but on the 6th of January there has blown a new air to the Guild, besides sharing experience, we try to recruit new Oorthlings to fight with us against the the creatures that teleports true the portals, to prepare us for the everlasting meteors. We are in need in gatherers, miners, builders and hunters. we need YOU.
Special thanks to @SePras for writing this awesome text!
